First Trailer for Michael Bay’s Benghazi Thriller ‘13 Hours’

Paramount has released the first trailer for Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” six months before its Jan. 15 opening.

The first half of the trailer conveys a strong sense of menace while the second offers a montage of desperate action sequences.

The film is based on the Mitchell Zuckoff’s book “Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.” It centers on the six members of a security team who fought to defend the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi from an attack of Islamist militants on Sept. 11, 2012 — the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

“When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right,” the trailer notes.

The film stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Toby Stephens, Pablo Schreiber, Max Martini, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, and Freddie Stroma. Filming began in April in Malta.

Chuck Hogan wrote the script and Erwin Stoff produces through 3 Arts Entertainment’s production shingle.

Four Americans were killed in the attacks — U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty.
